.fla file won't import-says" verify codec is installed"...

Apr 11, 2011

I am trying to insert  a istockphoto .fla video file into my powerpoint slide. Articulate says it supports .fla files. But when I go to import, I get the message "Powerpoint cannot insert a video from the selected file. Verify that the necessary codec for this media format is installed and try again.

Format factory will also let you convert the .flv to other formats. The challenge with converting from one format to another is that there's always some degradation.  Here's an older link on how to edit .flv files.

I haven't used them so I can't speak to how well they work.
